I'm looking for some guidance on how to start a garden at our new house. I'm completely new to this so any advice would be appreciated.
The former owners had an above ground pool in the backyard, and what is left is a large circular sand/gravel pad. The pad is pretty compact and solid. I still think I can till it up to loosen it though.
Would it be better to mix in compost/black dirt into the sand base, or build a raised bed on top of the sand base (surrounded by timber, etc)? Or is there a better way to approach this?
